Black Rice Spaghetti with Ladies Finger & Basil

Black Rice Spaghetti with Ladies Finger & Basil
Spaghetti’s and pasta’s have never been there during my childhood as we never used to get them in shop’s during the 1980’s. But now this has become a part of our regular meal. Today I tried Black Rice spaghetti with ladies finger and basil leaves and they turned out to be real yum.

Generally all my dishes are cooked for a minimum of  2 times before I start making them for the blog. But since the black rice spaghetti was a sponsored one from Urmatt & Dragon Fly Ltd, I was not sure how to try and publish. Then I thought I must divide the same packet into 3 parts so that I am confident before publishing. Hence this recipe is perfect for 1 person to consume.
You may multiply based on the needs. Moreover it is good to cook and serve immediately.

With the increase in diabetes among people it is good to move towards healthy ingredients. Black rice is high in antioxidents and fiber. It is good for diabetes and hence this dish can be consumed guilt free by those who wants there sugar under control. When we had for dinner the spaghetti was very light and filling. Adding them with ladies finger made the dish double yummy. You may replace this with any other spaghetti .I have done this recipe with my regular duram wheat spaghetti’s earlier. Parmesan cheese is totally optional hence for vegans and weight watches it can be ignored.
